The Iberian Empires and the ‘Soft’ Globalization, 15th-17th Centuries

Dates:

  Add to Calendar 2020-02-12 17:00 2020-02-12 19:00 Europe/Paris The Iberian Empires and the ‘Soft’ Globalization, 15th-17th Centuries

In the framework of the HEC Department Colloquia

Economic historians tend to differentiate between globalization and soft globalization. This distinction results in part from the approach and methodology used to shape the concept of globalization, which is mostly based on the analysis of price convergence (O’Rourke and Williamson), trade and circulation of silver (Flynn and Giráldez), as well as on the study of relationships between Europe and Asia (de Vries). This presentation will argue that a wider concept of globalization should be applied by using the Luso-Spanish Empire as a point of reference and by studying its deep and long-lasting effects upon political economies in different areas of the world as well as upon state building processes. Such a view, which leads to a more multilateral image of globalization, also requires the study of political and economic trends in Asia and America and allows for a richer comparison with other empires.
